Fender Custom Shop LTD Twisted Tele Journeyman Relic, Aged White Blonde
This is certainly one of our favorites here! Everything you want in a Tele and more, the Limited Edition Journeyman Relic Twisted Tele is one handsome tone machine. The secret to this guitar’s tone is right there in the name; the hand-wound Twisted Tele pickups set the foundation by cranking out hot, high-output Telecaster guitar tone, while the Greasebucket tone control allows you to roll off the highs without losing volume. The Bigsby® B-5 bridge and tailpiece add a way-cool retro vibe while the Journeyman Relic finish gives it the look and feel of a guitar that’s seen service on many a stage.
Other features include a select two-piece, off-center ash body with lacquer finish, a lacquer-finished rift-sawn maple neck with 10/56 V-shaped profile, 9.5" radius fingerboard, jumbo frets and one-ply parchment pickguard. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity.

So, what the heck is the Greasebucket tone control? According to Fender, the Greasebucket tone circuit adds a new dimension to your tone, the effect is that when rolled down, the tone pot reduces the high frequencies, but does not add bass. The Greasebucket tone control is a cool way to roll off the highs and lows in your guitar while preventing your tone from getting muddy. This is especially helpful for creating sparkling clean tones, but it’s also useful for overdriven sounds.
